TUA THE EXPLORER (BEAST OR BUST)
BEAST DOME NATION.
Tuanigamanuolepola Tagovailoa. Aka Tua.
A QB who was easily the reason why the Dolphins did not make the playoffs last season. Probably their best chance for the first time since Paris Hilton was relevant, the Dolphins had a chance of being a winning Football team. Only to let Tua throw it all away. Year two the Dolphins loaded Tua with weapons.
Will Fuller. Jaylen Waddle. to go along with Mikey G. and DeVante Parker!
WHAT CAN GO WRONG??
We will see how Tua responds but his awareness has to jump up 100 points. He seemed more like Doug Flutie meets Colin Kaepernick to his game. Not the sexiest Football to watch, but it was effective in a few games. With such big time weapons, Tua really has to show he has what it takes to throw for 300 yards in a game. There will be mismatches, it is his team, it is his franchise. Tua can either be Dan Marino or he can be Cade McNown.
What do I predict?
It all depends on his first game of the season, and progression through the preseason. On the road against Bill Belichick and his defense Week 1. A game that everyone expects the Patriots D to win the battle, but if we see a grown up Tua who is no longer on Nick Jr. Then we can see the start to a new life in the Franchise of the Miami Dolphins. If Tua struggles in that matchup and looks hopeless, then it can be another season of negative vibes that down spirals their season once again missing the playoffs.
Is Tua the BEAST DOME QB this season?
Absolutely not, and nobody should be promoting him as a Fantasy Option this season. Even if he does progress, it will be nothing more than QB2 upside. He could have a few good games, but he will definitely have his below average performances more often than not.
